This exhibition is produced by Beaux-Arts de Paris in the iconic setting of the glass courtyard of the Palais des Études; it presents for the first time anywhere in the world, a retrospective view of this specific body of brick sculptures alone, as conceived by Danish artist, Per Kirkeby.

Brick Sculpture (1966-2016)

Since the very beginning of his career Kirkeby introduced into his practice large bricks sculptures, which then have punctuated his whole artistic trajectory. Whereas about a hundred of these pieces were actually built and the artist’s archive comprises many plans and drawings of unrealized brick projects, there has never been an exhibition entirely and solely dedicated to this corpus until now.

For Beaux-Arts de Paris glass courtyard, Kirkeby selected twelve pieces including a monumental construction, a group of three floor sculptures and an original series of eight steles.

Stemming from the Minimalism of the mid-Sixties and built in a highly symbolic material, these sculptures quickly reflect the zeitgeist of the post-Minimalist position. Borrowing architectural techniques and playing with scale, many of his brick sculptures were initially conceived for museums and galleries, and later became known from installations populating parks and streets of many European cities, especially Germany, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.

In the colourful setting of the glass courtyard, the twelve brick works by Kirkeby will dialogue with a place closely related to the history of sculpture. For about a century (1874-1971) this grand space was indeed dedicated to the presentation of plaster copies from ancient statuary used as models for drawing classes, which was central to the education of young artists for over a hundred years.

A book will be produced in collaboration with the Cahiers d’Art in French and English editions as a companion to the exhibition, with installation photographs by George Dupin, and texts by Didier Semin, Professor of Art History at Beaux-Arts de Paris, Penelope Curtis, Director Calouste Gulbenkian Museum, Jill Silverman van Coenegrachts and Thierry Leviez, curators. Cahiers d’Art, 14 rue du Dragon, will also present a double gallery exhibition opening 20 October – 20 January of Per Kirkeby Blackboards and Brick Works.

Born in 1938 in Copenhagen, Per Kirkeby developed a unique body of work rooted in art history – from the German and French masters of the 19th century to the expressionist movements of the Eighties – and inspired by his studies in geology. Although he considers himself a painter, Kirkeby is also a sculptor, architect, film director and the author of about sixty books.
